The temps. were warmer yet this morning with 21 Degrees on the peak.  It still felt cold, but I guess I am not yet acclimated to the cold quite yet.  While full machine work was done over night, the firmness was a bit more acute, however, that is more a reflection of the severe condition of my edges than anything else, as the folks with the sharpies were having no problem at all.  Continued snow making offered the pockets of Gun Powder that were a treat in which to dial in a turn.  Nice feel.  Coverage remains consistently good as the guns are blazing top to bottom, which is good to know if you are bringing a fresh tune to the hill.  The crew was breaking up the flow by visiting Gad 2 and making a full lap to the bottom of the Gad Valley.  Coverage there is quite good as well with just the firmness the only issue I had to deal with.   Here is a shot of Mr. Scott on the left and The Carvinator on the right after we hit the top of the Gad 2 Chair. DSC03238You can see the high clouds that began to move in around Noon, making the light go a bit flat.  Still, visibility remained good.  Tomorrow, look for some cloud cover to be affecting the lighting.   Full Grooming efforts will be on tap and the temps. are still good for top to bottom machine accumulation.   Look for those nice areas of fresh Gun Powder to get a taste of the soft and smooth.  See you there for the first Boat.  I’ll Be  Blasting You!!!
